I never really thought about it before. It only started occuring to me in the last few years.

But I did spend a lot of my life wondering why people thought so-and-so was so great when they were so obviously crazy/evil/lying, etc.
And then later, when the true colors came out, they would be like, "Omg!" And I sat there thinking, "You can't be serious. It was totally obvious from day one."

EVEN the friends of my parents (when I was a kid - adults should have known better just from life experience).

Thanks.. then you understand. I think if someone is blessed with the ability to pick this up, it is a good thing and as you say, could be anywhere. As in that example, this guy seemed "otherwise occupied", tense, walking quickly, on a mission, but not picking up items, no basket, and saw him circling the store. A person could just be in a hurry, but it was this sense of something that emanated from him besides, that I felt. That is kind of what I figured later, that he was seeking a target.

I had posted something about that instance in another topic recently - "Why do I hear about men being creepy and dangerous more than women?", having just gotten a very unpleasant response from another earlier, as if I was "just a female unfairly judging a male".

When I was 6 years old, my brother and I walked to the grocery store. We were near the front and my brother got a little ahead of me, when this man standing near the store, held out his hand, he had some coins in it. He put out his hand to give the coins to me and I took them. As soon as I did, I got really scared and a bad feeling and threw the money in the bushes, remembering what my mother told me about strangers approaching children, offering them candy.

After I threw the money, I ran after my brother and told him what happened. He yelled at me, reminding me what that man could have done, if he grabbed my hand as I held it out for the money. The money felt like scorching hot to me, likely fear, and remembering what my mom told me.. Grateful I am here today, had he been a dangerous predator, things would have turned out different.

Looking back on it, why would a grown man approach a 6 year old offering her a handful of change? We were poor back them, maybe he felt sorry for me, but either way, he should not have done that, my mom later said. I would have freaked out if some grown man tried to give my 6 year old money, just too many creepy people out there..

You were reiterating what your mother told you. I think you may be hypersensitive as a result.

I had a vibe like that once. I had to go to Walmart late one night for a big shopping and as I shopped I kept noticing 3 men who were sometimes together and sometimes not and they all seemed to be watching me and not in a good way. I filled up 2 whole carts but they were still walking around with 3 items and I decided there was no way I was going out to the car by myself and asked for security. They thought I was nuts but I was not going w/o them. Of course I will never know if my gut instinct was right but I think it was b/c I'm not overreactive--I've never asked for security under any other circumstance I mean and I'm not afraid to go out and drive at night or even walk around as long as the neighborhood is reasonably safe.

And it works pretty great in regular life, too.

I can literally just look at your face and tell about how you are.
My wife thinks that is kooky, but she has seen it work too much to question it.
But...how do you know you're not just misinterpreting - like the episode on Seinfeld where the doctors keep writing stuff in Elaine's chart?

Just kidding, though. I think it's great that you have that ability. So you know a drug seeking patient even before they ask for benzodiazepines or narcotics by name?

Yeah, that happened in my area.

The information is right there, in their EM field, but some people are more sensitive to it that others. Scientific research from the U of Arizona has shown that we're interacting with others on a very subtle level even when we're not aware of it. We're picking up information from them, or exchanging energy. Maybe some people's sensory filters are stronger than others, so they filter those subtle messages out in favor of info gleaned by the 5 primary senses.
Probably wouldn't say as much stronger as I would say more developed. But yeah, I sometimes get those feelings. I personally take it as our brain processing more information than we're aware of, then there is everything I have read about the subconscious mind

I believe everything is connected.

You were dead on correct! Most smart and aware people are alive today because they feel something like you do. I can tell you if I shopped late at Walmart (likely would not because I would do it in the day time but still..things happen and you decide to stop there) I would have done exactly what you did. I would have asked for an escort out

I think I felt a lot of guilt accepting those coins and my moms words were more powerful, than my need to buy something with that money
